List of Intel’s Xeon E ‘Rocket Lake’ CPUs Leaks

An alleged list of Intel’s Xeon E-series ‘Rocket Lake’ processors for multipurpose single-socket (1S) servers has been published by a leaker with a rather good reputation. The new processors with up to eight cores and Intel’s Xe-LP graphics (select SKUs only) will be a part of Intel’s codenamed Tatlow platform for entry-level servers as well as embedded applications. The chips feature different core counts and relatively moderate clocks. 

Intel has not updated its Xeon E lineup since Q2 2019 when it launched its Xeon E-2200-series processors based on the Coffee Lake microarchitecture, perhaps because the Comet Lake design did not really bring many advantages to the targeted applications. By contrast, the new Xeon E-2300-series CPUs are powered by the Cypress Cove microarchitecture, have a built-in GPU featuring the Xe-LP architecture (select units), AVX-512 support, 20 PCIe 4.0 lanes, and DDR4-3200 support. Such CPUs offer significantly higher general-purpose performance, faster PCIe support, and improved media processing capabilities (there is a catch about media processing capabilities though) when compared to previous-generation Xeon E-2200-series CPUs.
